As Employees Walk Out, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos Backtracks and Admits He ‘Screwed Up’ Dave Chappelle Response

Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos is walking back his repeated defenses of Dave Chappelle’s new standup special, “The Closer,” admitting that he “screwed up” internal communications just hours before employees were set to stage a virtual walkout. In separate interviews with Variety and Deadline on Tuesday, Sarandos admitted that Netflix’s recent moves to curtail employee backlash over the special—including temporarily suspending three employees for crashing an executive-level meeting, firing a pregnant organizer, and doubling down on claims that “content on screen doesn’t directly translate to real-world harm”—had maybe not been the savviest way to handle a burgeoning crisis at the company.

Just when you gained some respect for Sarandos for standing up to the woke mob, the guy backtracks a bit and apologizes for way he defended Chappelle when in actuality he did nothing wrong in the first place and should fire those idiot protestors who had the gall to protest their boss.
